Music Across the Senses provides music educators with practical ideas for facilitating student music listening skill development. Written both for in-service and pre-service music educators, the book shows how to facilitate PK-12 students' listening skills using multisensory means in general music and performance ensemble classes.
As a whole, Music Across the Senses helps teachers enable students to learn how to devise independent strategies for listening that they can employ and enjoy both now and throughout their lives.
